Reboot 9: Alexander Kjerulf


Alexander Kjerulf is the “Chief Happiness Officer” and will present his talk “Happiness is subversive – Let’s change the world. With happiness.“.

He and I talk about:

  • the importance on being happy
  • a bit bragging about his work – but it is all fun
  • last years interview with him
  • how he wrote on / with the blog his book “Happy Hour is 9 to 5
  • people are very happy at work in Scandinavia!
  • and danes and swedes are absolutely the same *duck and cover*
  • happy startup companies in Eastern Europe – we are more the same than we are different
  • why happiness is subversive and anger will only take you so far
  • motivation is towards a brighter future than being motivated to move away from a problem
  • what is important to you? if you come back from an exhausting weekday, how much fun are you really for your family?
  • be passionate, be happy and earn more
  • say no to some customers
  • put your happiness first and a lot of trouble will go away
